    Good morning, I will be taking a trip to the Acadia/Bar Harbor area next week and I intend to bring my Phantom 3 with my to capture the scenery. I've spoken to the National Park Service and our drones are still banned in the park which leaves me with a question. For those of you who have visited/live there, where are some good places to capture footage outside of their boundaries?

    The smaller islands look like your best bet to remain in "compliance." I've heard there are still a lot of coastal areas that are good for scenic flying but I have not been up there yet to scout them out. The ban is part of the reason I've held off from going up.

    The national park ban remains total BS IMO, as there should at least be a permit process where one can drop them a serial number before flying... that would resolve their stupid argument about not being able to track the "resulting damage" caused by lost drones. OK, end of rant before things get off topic.

    Thank you for your input. From a Google Map standpoint I will definitely check out the coastal areas, but I'm not sure what I'll actually find once I start driving around. I'm certainly tempted to bring it up one of the mountains but I'd like to remain a responsible pilot(Booo! I know haha).
